3 super simple tuna snacks

Eating healthy doesn’t have to mean taking out a mortgage to pay for it.

I’m going to share super simple tuna snacks, made with tinned tuna. You can get tuna from $0.80 in Australia (probably even cheaper too) and with some other simple ingredients you have a nutritious snack or meal. 

1. Tuna + Avocado on Rice Cakes or Corn Thins

This is great for anytime of the day; breakfast (my favourite as a post-workout brekie), lunch or an afternoon snack. I use John West Tuna Slices in Olive Oil (pictured) or Coles Tuna in Olive Oil. Slice some avocado, add to rice cakes or corn thins. Smash it up a little first if you like with a fork, or keep it as slices. Top with Tuna. Simple as that.

2. Tuna Pasta Salad

Ingredients (for a single serving):

  • 95g tin of tuna with tomato & onion or springwater (drained)
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1 cup penne pasta (cooked)
  • 4 baby bocconcini (halved)
  • 6 black olives
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

How to make it:

  • Cook pasta until al dente, drain
  • Toss with Tuna
  • In a separate bowl combine baby spinach, olives & baby bocconcini
  • Add pasta & tuna to the spinach combo, drizzle over oil and balsamic vinegar. Combine & serve!
